Office 365 Homepage graphic

Microsoft is offering Office 365 software FREE to Southwestern Community College students!  Simply visit the Microsoft Office 365 Education Web page and type in your SWCC student e-mail address (for example This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to confirm your eligibility (note: you must use your SWCC e-mail address; do not use a Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, or other address or it will not work).   After you’ve done this, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with directions on how to install the software.   

Need assistance?  Please ensure you've done the following:

  • If you have an existing trial version of Office on your computer, make sure you have uninstalled it first.
  • Microsoft will send an email to your SWCC account with instructions on setting up a Microsoft account.  Please make sure you follow these instructions carefully, and make note of the username and password you create for Microsoft (SWCC I.T. staff are unable to reset this if you forget what it is).  

If you still need assistance, please visit the information technology department upstairs in the Instructional Center, on the Creston campus.
